AMD is setting up to deliver a couple of new Athlon II X3 CPUs to the market. These will be the Athlon II X3 445 and 450. The 445 will have a clock of 3.1GHz while the 450 will be clocked at a rather nice 3.2GHz. The A II 450 could have a 45nm Rana core with 1.5MB of L2 Cache and a TDP envelope of 95 Watts.
The current top dog Athlon II x3 is sits at right around $90 so we can only hope that these two come in around there and make fitting companions for the 890GX motherboard and perhaps a nice HD5670 or 5830. We should see the new CPUs from AMD sometime next quarter.
